The hip and hot sashimi bar Uni at The Eliot Hotel has made a name for itself with inventive Japanese fusion cuisine. Exotic Far East dishes and artful plates of raw fish pair with an exciting sake list. The Eliot Hotel's other dining gem, Clio takes French food and service to an exquisite level in an atmosphere reminiscent of a 1920s Parisian supper club. Heralded chef Ken Oringer heads up both Boston restaurant venues.

Location was the key.

Would recommend Tue, Nov 3, 2015
If you're looking to shop Newberry St., walk to Boston Commons, Enjoy fine dining and have super easy access to the T Train stop, this is your place. Beautiful old world charm and excellent service by the staff. Two great restaurants off the lobby: High End French American and a Stylish Sushi Bar. However, our stay wasn't perfect and not worth the high price tag. Our room looked out to an alley, the Wifi barely worked, the room furnishings, doors, etc. were a bit banged up, the bathroom was tiny and the bed was terrible: A full size with a super soft mattress did not offer a good night sleep for two people. I would still recommend this hotel, but just make sure you request a queen or king bed with a newer mattress.

Very pleasant staff, great location

Would recommend Tue, Aug 11, 2015
The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. The room was clean and sufficient. On the small side but not sure what the norm is for the area as this was our first visit to Boston. Location great! Staff made up for any shortcomings! Would recommend and will return.

A perfect stay for one night away

Would recommend Tue, Jun 23, 2015
We live in the Boston area but wanted to treat ourselves to a special evening. We'd seen the hotel while walking in the neighbourhood and have wanted to stay for a while. It was better than we'd hoped! The staff were kind and helpful, the area was quiet and picturesque and the room was beautiful. A perfect experience!

This is a very classy hotel with roomy accommodations and top-notch dining options. The façade was under renovation when I stayed but the interior of the lobby and the room was terrific. Great value.

I stayed at the Eliot from Christmas Day through the weeekend. The staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful, our suite was beautiful and the location was terrific. The restaurant and sushi bar are exceptional. I highly recommend The Eliot Hotel.

Best place to stay in Back Bay

Would recommend Mon, Oct 27, 2014
We stayed here for MIT's Family Weekend. Convenient to campus AND Boston, AND the fraternity/sorority area for MIT. I love that the Eliot is a stone's throw from the Hyne's T stop, or just a quick walk to the Kenmore area, Newbury, or MIT. The room was a cozy suite with a King bed in one room, and a full sitting room in the other. There are thoughtful touches such as two blanket throws to wrap over your shoulders or place across your lap. There were two luggage racks--a touch often missed by hotels. There was a Keurig coffee maker in the mini-bar area, complete with bar sink. There was a closet safe, plenty of towels, bathrobes, two tv's, free and easy to use internet... Everything was perfect. Our bed was quite comfortable, the shower very strong--always a plus. The only amenities I personally could have wished for would have been a weekend local paper or NYT delivered, and more coffee pods (regular please!). The front desk (Alexy) was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The doorman and bellhops were also always welcoming. We were lucky to happen upon a good price for the weekend, and usually this hotel is out of our budget. We have stayed at many area hotels over the years, and this was among the top two. With Boston and now Cambridge hotels suddenly surging in price, we were so happy we splurged on the Eliot. You won't go wrong with a stay here.

Excellent hotel in superb location

Would recommend Tue, Sep 16, 2014
We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights and we're not disappointed. The staff are very efficient and friendly and go out of their way to help you. We were upgraded to a suite and the rooms were spotless. Great location and would recommend this hotel.

Shopping hint

This hotel is ideally situated for shopping, dining and nightlife. Could not be in a better location. This is also a short distance away from Fenway park

Would recommend Mon, Aug 25, 2014
8 out of 10 for location, value for money and small enough for some personal service. Location is key and it was right on

Attractions

If going to Fenway Park to see the Red Sox, this is a must place to say Also close to Cambridge etc.
